GROUND VOTE JOY FOR DONS

The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP -

AFC WIM­BLE­DON be­lieve they are on the right road to re­turn­ing to their spir­i­tual home in Plough Lane.

Last Mon­day, Dons Trust mem­bers voted 98 per cent in favour of sell­ing the club’s cur­rent ground, Kingsmeadow. It was the sec­ond ballot car­ried out by the Trust ac­cord­ing to its rules and con­firmed the re­sult of the first vote.

The Dons want to use the funds from sell­ing King­meadow to Chelsea to help them build their new ground. How­ever, the sale can only go through if Wim­ble­don gain plan­ning per­mis­sion for a 12,000-seater sta­dium at Plough Lane.

AFC Wim­ble­don chief ex­ec­u­tive Erik Sa­muel­son said: “We have passed a huge hur­dle.”
